Yes, but you still have the problem of the conflict resolution. First, 
this doesnt work if files are changed on both sides. Which to chose? And 
with a "real" sync app versus a file sync app it would present the 
contents of the conflicted data side by side and asking you what to do. 
And I am not talking about pure raw file contents but with a real user 
interface the presents contacts like contacts and calendar data as 
calendar data. Of course everything can be done using text diffs but 
then you are not on eye level with iPhone et al.
